're doing. if we have a growing economy but if the leaders of congress can't come together and deal with the sequester and the possible shutdown and we continue to live in these short- short-term crises, it diminishes our strength around the world. it does. >> michael: that seems to be happening. you told us straightforwardly and exactly what it is democratic strategy kiki mclean, thank you for coming in to "the war room" today. >>> undeterred from the angry stares and slack jawed confusion from the media, elizabeth warren continues to speak truth to power. the latest on her introduction to this unique phenomenon in washington that story next. with award winning documentaries that take you inside the headlines. real, gripping, current. documentaries... on current tv. you're invited to take the lysol wipes challenge. try lysol dual action wipes and see the cleaning power. lysol dual action wipes have 2 sides instead of one. a scrubbing side that cleans tough stains better than clorox. and a smooth side for everyday touchups. all while killing 99.9% of germs. take the lysol w
she said yes before we prosecute bankers we ask for permission. will it help the economy? will it help the bank shareholders? who gives a damn if it hurts the bank shareholders. did they ask you is it going to hurt your family or your shareholders? no there's two separate sets of rules. we'll talk more about that tonight. right now "viewpoint" is next. stay right here. >> john: for the past few days rome has been a gathering of men, mostly in costume but now argentinian cardinal jorge mario bergoglio is now francis 1. i wish he would have kept the named jorge. they tried to use the old electronic voting machines but they had to stop because every time they voted george bush kept winning. that's not true. president obama tried the charm offensive on republicans who were offended by his charm. the only way you can get modern republicans to agree on government spend something to declaring war on the country that never attacked us. today is the birthday of earl gray and adam clayton and j.p. morgan ceo jamie dimon. wouldn't it be great if all of we taxpayers got together and buy him a gift
challenge of dealing with our economy. meaning, he would be a true leader and we would have a budget that cuts entitlements strips money from programs from those who actually need it. and it balances out. maybe that's why the president likes to stay at home in the white house after all. joining me is peter welch of vermont, who had a chance to meet with the president today. congressman, thank you for being on "viewpoint" this evening. >> thank you. >> john: you met with the president earlier. how would you describe the meeting? were you encouraged at all by what you heard? >> quite a bit? >> john: really? >> yes, the president had a brutal campaign and he won on a very explicit commitment that he would about up the economy bring down the deficit. that was the argument to bring down the debt. there is not a disagreement between him and mr. boehner about the debt. it's how we do it and when we do it. it was reassuring when he said he was not going to chase a bad deal. he was asked about the cpi which was a great concern to democrats. what he said was look, he's going to totally maintai
at $500 since 1999. it's been pretty flat. we are getting more jobs. the economy is getting better but at a lower rate than it should be. we lost over 700,000 government jobs during the obama administration despite all the right wing talk about him the fact is the deficit is getting smaller and there are fewer and fewer government jobs. the addition of jobs we had last month, 236,000 jobs, 70 those of those were business service jobs. that's a good sign for the future. accountants office workers being hired that employeers expect more business in the future. but the sequester and the press for austerity and the increase of social security tax are all slowing our progress to where we should be. >> michael: of course these companies would be hiring accountants now because they're making so much damn money because they're not paying enough wages to their workers. that's part and parcel of how it works. >> yes remember a fundamental tenant of the chicago school and i went to the chicago school is to get rid of unions, that means driving down wages. i just reported in my column in tax a
$85 billion of spending and as many as three-quarters of a million jobs out of the economy this year. we've gotten used to republican leaders insisting the national debt is the nation's number one priority. but that might be so last week. here is congressman paul ryan on "face the nation" this sunday. >> we do not have a debt crisis right now, but we see it coming. we know it's irrefutably happening. if we follow the president's lead or if we pass the senate budget then we will have a debt crisis then everybody gets hurts. you know who gets hurt first the poor and the elderly. that's what we're trying to prevent from happening. >> john: preventing a debt crisis to help the poor and elderly. that sounds like a really good idea. could speaker of the house john boehner agree with congressman ryan on this? >> we do not have an immediate debt crisis, but we all know that we have one looming. it could be a year, two years three years four years. it's not an immediate problem. >> john: how about canceling the sequester mr. speaker. while the national debt may not be an immediate problem sur
down. >> george bush ruined the economy. obama is trying to save it. >> stephanie: yes, lowest level of spending since eisenhower. rush limbaugh >> so what the left tries to do -- you'll hear this fill this pulpit praise for his behavior towards the poor and people in the thir world, and it's going to be an attempt to soften him up, because eventually what they want him to do is renounce christ. that is the objective of the progressives who oppose the catholic church. >> stephanie: oh! oh! it's progressives that -- you mean alter boy rape? what do we oppose? >> no progressives want the pope to renounce christ. >> stephanie: oh yes, that's on the top of my list. >> huh? >> he is just making stuff up. >> stephanie: and that's why pat boon would come in on fox business channel. >> he is following his play book which is [ inaudible ] rule for radicals. >> come on. >> this is the guy that trained him to be a marksist, a socialist, a progressive -- >> those are not the same things! >> -- but there has to be some kind of reasoning for what he does. he has a plan which he
this economy, the obama economy on its way back. happy. are you ready for this? are you ready, dan? a happy friday. ♪ alleluia. ♪ >> bill: friday march 15th. ♪ alleluia. ♪ >> favorite day around the full court press. it seems like this friday was a long time in coming. i don't know. maybe it's because this week -- this was a 5-day work week for me. >> appear 5-day work week >> bill: i didn't get to take a couple of days off this week. great to see you this friday. thank you for joining us here and being part of the full court press as we come to you live on current tv, as we come to you live on your local progressive talk radio station where you happen to be in this great land of ours, whether it's los angeles or chicago or asheville, north carolina or buffalo, new york or any spot in between or -- and how about madison wisconsin? didn't mean to check over that. a lot of great places. also, coming to you live on sirius xm, this hour only. lots to talk about. a lot that you are going to want to comment on. we will give you a lot of different ways to
resilient economy and our world currency status. >> michael: there you have it. but it turns out americans saw right through it. a poll out today from the hill shows while americans might be sympathetic to republican's ideas about lowering taxes they still trust the president to handle the economy. 65% said u.s. budget deficit should be reduced by cutting spending. but 35% said they trust the democrats more. so to regain the public's trust they have done an autopsy of the 2012 campaign. the rorpt has a lot of style but not a lot of serious substance. in it the word messaging appears 77 times technology in there 42 times, and then there is the long list of things that got no mention at also. health care inequality and others. the plan also pointed to some other issues, and no bashing poor people at all. the plan says low-income americans are hardworking people who want to become hard-working middle-income americans of course paul's plan would make it harder than ever to allow poor people to join the middle class. next up, reagan. enough already. the youngin's at all don't
is not to chase a balanced budget just for the sake of balance. my goal is how do we grow the economy, put people back to work and if we do that, we'll be bringing in more revenue if we've controlled spending and we've got a smart entitlement package, then potentially what you have is balance but it is not balance on the backs of the poor the elderly students who need student loans families who have got disabled kids. that's not the right way to balance our budget. >> stay away from entitlement reform because it is a fraud. >> stephanie: yeah. [ ♪ "jeopardy" theme ♪ ] >> stephanie: jim, guess what's good about paul ryan's budget? >> nothing. >> stephanie: guess what's bad about paul ryan's budget? everything. >> wow! you got two in a row right! >> unusual. >> stephanie: i did that with a sledgehammer. would you like the fun facts that think progress brings us the five worst things. i'm not going to go into the details. number one huge tax cuts to the rich and corporations. there is a shock. number two forces seniors to pay more for healthcare. number three cuts food stamps. >> that sounds cra
to the economy. manufacture something picking up. the housing market is picking up. now, it's a deliberate wedged repeal that. >> 750,000 families without a paycheck. they are not spending money, creating any demand, putting money into the economy. >> it will actually reduce growth about six %. >> the which you choose on twitter, the hash tag is youchoose. >> that's right. >> or go to your website schakowsky.house.gov. >> all right. we will roll them out over time should we have 2100 fewer food inspections or give. they can't get their arms around because of grover norquist. >> on the gun issue, talking about mental health services 373,000 seriously ill, mentally ill children and adults will lose treatment. should we do that or give special tax breaks to hedge fund managers? i mean these are the kinds of choices that we are literally making right now in this country. >> one of the tax breaks is owners of corporate jets. i don't know how much money that is >> absolutely. jets and luxury products and yachts and that kind of thing. really? really? should we gi
driving the economy into bad places and the fact that the voting public is going to look vastly different than the cpac attendees do. cenk: that's a great point. let's show the rand paul part of the speech that you mentioned earlier where -- and i'm curious how well this was received. this was one of the very few moments where they actually talked about doing something new. >> ask the facebook generation whether we should put a kid in jail for the non-violent crime of drug use and you'll hear a resounding no! ask the facebook generation if they want to bail out two big to fail banks with their tax dollars and you'll hear a hell no. there is nothing conservative about bailing out wall street. cenk: i'm curious about that on two fronts, one how did the pot discussion go with the crowd and attendees and number two he talked about there's nothing conservative about bailing out banks except almost the entire republican party is in the pocket of the banks and i wonder if the audience realizes that disconnect. >> that was a perfect example of disconnect, because you did have something new. talki
, or resourced-based economy, you are always at the effect of the limitations on that resource. there is no way around it, you are going to run out of it. and if you go we have 100 years of natural gas. look if it is causing earthquakes to get it out of the ground now, what about the crap gas, if there was an easy flow -- spigot that you stick it in the ground, we would be using that natural gas. we're not. the natural gas boom going on now, involves pumping huge amounts of water in the ground -- >> you are talking about frac-ing. >> hal: yes, and directly causing earth quicks in areas of the country they are not used to. here we are. we arel -- ohio has never done that. in john boehner's direct unfortunately anybody who voted for him the last ten times around you are not thinking about the future you are totally just -- you have hung up on that notion because just outside of his district in lima ohio, there is a factory that is making abrams tanks, and he snuck in $180 million for upgrades to this tank, which is being phased out. it's a cold war relic and they are tryin
and debt, and jobs and the economy. those are total winners for us. >> michael: i am speechless. michael what is your reaction to that? >> that's crazy. poll after after poll after poll after poll comes out and show that the majority of the american people want x to happen, and as soon as you read that poll, that's nice i'm glad the american people think that but it's never going to happen because republicans won't let it happen. background checks 91% in the most recent poll but many, many polls showing 88%, 91%, show background checks and they were straight line against it. and the majority of polled republicans in this survey supporting public investment in infrastructure spending, and, you know, well -- it's obama has been calling for it for ages, but we know it's utterly impossible. so let's bash harry reid but they are the problem. >> michael: clearly they are the problem, on the assault weapons i'm just frustrated with reid. and you point out 80-some-odd percent on infrastructure and i heard 84% of nra members are for background checks so i don't know who they ar
is a balanced budget. this will give us a healthy economy. >> balancing budgets is not just arithmetic. it is a means to an end. it's a means to a healthier economy, a pro-growth society, a pro-growth economy that delivers opportunity. >> bill: president obama is talking with george stephanopolous says, no, no, no, for paul ryan balancing the budget has become more important than doing the right thing for the american people. >> if you look at what paul ryan does to balance the budget it means that you have to voucherize medicare. you have to slash deeply into programs like medicaid. >> bill: jay carney pointed out yesterday in our briefing at the whitehouse that the other thing about the ryan budget is it is all spending cuts, all cut cut, cut, cut, cut. not one freaking penny of new revenue. >> have you looked at the ryan budget? can you find a single item of tax reform, a single loophole closed? $5 trillion, $5 trillion, man. >> that's a lot of money. not one. >> bill: cuts 5 trillion, doesn't add one penny new revenue. it's totally unrealistic. here'
jobs balancing the budget and trying to get our economy moving again. >> stephanie: why won't the president help us kill more poor people? >> we have a mulch shortage in this company. >> stephanie: why won't the president compromise on that. >> make sure there is more money for bronzer. >> the republicans want to balance the budget, the president doesn't. the republicans want to solve our long-term debt problem, the president doesn't. we want to unlock our energy resources to put america back to work. the president doesn't. but i hope these kinds of discussions can continue -- >> stephanie: that made no sense at all. >> we need more oil spills and more dead poor people. but it was a good start. >> stephanie: how it is a good start. the boner one more time. >> i thought we had a very candid and frank exchange of ideas, and frankly i think it was productive. >> frankly. productive. as long as we get rid of more tax cuts for orange rich people. >> stephanie: margaret in texas. hello margaret? okay. scott in massachusetts. she was enjoying the show at least. hel
a successful economy. look back at the eisenhower years when we built the roads that weave all overthis country, you can go back to the civil war when the transcontinental railroad happened or all of these important public investments that leveraged private investment -- >> that's right. >> so the bottom line is this argument that government never created a job is ridiculously false. darpa, the grant program from the military, which is the government that helped found this thing known as the internet. come on -- i heard the internet started a new jobs. >> al gore started that. >> bill: i want to try to get a word in here now -- [ laughter ] >> it is your show, isn't it? [ laughter ] >> bill: we have to take a little break here, but it's not just the ryan budget there is a competing budget, a budget released by the progressive caucus yesterday, who's co-chair is in studio with us. i want to hear more about that when we come back here on the "full court press." >> announcer: heard around the country, and seen on current tv. this is the "bill press show." ♪ the iss
the things the blood flowing of our economy without oil in its form. we do not have the technology to move past that, and therefore we are at the whim of big oil on a regular basis. the insurance companies and the current medical establishment has the constant resource of funds in the form of an aging population and a consistent and sometimes, you know, you can even create a disease where there is none as far as a label goes and start treating it, whether or not it needs that kind of treating. they have a constant flow of money. there is no way to tamp down, and that's part of i guess the p.r. push of this is that necessary care is used as a way as a hammer against anybody who would want to limit their growth as far as the profit-making industry. it makes it especially as the baby boomer generation ages. let's take a break and when we come back, i would love to hear where you think the next steps can come from, because obviously health care as we have it, a lot of people, you know, said all or nothing. if i can't get a single pair, i don't want it at all, but the protections against preexi
gets in and tries use them, it craters the economy, every single time and bush was the most egregious obvious example of that but even ronald reagan had to raise taxes seven times due to the fact that their other policies were shrinking the middle class. now when i say their economic policies are unsuccessful, that's because from my point of view, i want a healthy, thriving middle class. the progressive side of things liberals in this country, while we certainly care for the poor, we don't do it at the exclusion of the middle class our the exclusion of millionaires. but the middle class has been squeezed so horribly by the -- the -- you know, the promise of trickle-down economics and the chicago school of economics it just -- i mean from -- something as -- the heavy side of it and the shock doctrine, to the crap idea that somehow if you just let the job makers not pay taxes they will hide all of their money in vegas rather than the cayman islands and we'll all live off of the interest it's absurd nonsense that it's the bootstrapers and that anybody w
